Only Eight weeks left of doing these reports as my last is the 27th of August. But bach to todays proceedings our runner for today was the 102nd solo run for Sophie Little. Fresh from last nights concert in Chapelfield park. Running around in the Verv with her was Pilot Perrott. David Whiteley possibly fresh from surfing somewhere on Norfolk's coast, was keeping the presenters chair warm this morning, tearing maps and downing coffee. Questmaster had the hard job done in getting the clues in place, he was not alone this week as Glam Anna Morton was there to assist. The crew were ensconsed in Burnham Market to start the proceedings and we failed to get to the treasure at Clfton House in Kings Lynn
